President Trump Passes Universal Health Care, Usurps Democrats!

President Trump Passes Universal Health Care, Usurps Democrats and Destroys Neocon Never Trumpsters.

.

How Will He Do It?
Well, he could just pass U-Care with a 15% VAT, control medical prices and procedures, and cap profits.*

OR

He could roll this out and call it a bi-partisan deal.

On Medicaid: Raise limit to $23k, full coverage with profit caps that are fair, these will be tax deductible for hospitals, labs, clinics, doctors and nurses. Add co-pays from $24k up to $28k.

From $29k open up the free market across state lines.

On Medicare: For a recipient with no other insurance, lower the age to 55 based on income; same formula as above on income levels until age 65 and making under $250k. Yes, if you earn more than $250k a year in retirement you had and are still having a very nice, safe and free life in this country, you can give a little back in co-pays.

 

If President Trump can get close to this he’ll win the 2020 election in a landslide and perhaps be even more loved than Reagan, Kennedy and FDR.

 

Note: This plan for US Universal Health Care Would Be For American Citizens Only. You will need notarized documents as proof in order to be eligible. States along with a Federal Government Oversight Board can negotiate prices and procedural costs with hospitals and doctors, using simple one page forms.

 

Further: For non US citizens cash up front or a payment plan can be arranged, this may include Administrative fees.

If payment is not made within 90 days the country of origin will be billed the full price of the medical care with fees.
If destitute, private charities can step in or pro-bono work can be provided from a medical institution or college.

For those who are US Citizens, but have lost all records, a grant to replace official documents will be provided if proven indigent.

In the rare case that someone who was born in the US without any documentation, and is under the age of 65, those persons will have to go before a board of governors, provide proof of past employment or care, along with testimony and witnesses, otherwise they will need to buy private insurance or seek help from a charity clinic. Unfortunately, something like this could take a great deal of time in the very beginning. Anyone caught lying or falsifying documents will be prosecuted under the full extent of the law and denied U-Care.  Any falsification by foreigners will mean confiscation of all property and possessions and instant deportation.

Any falsification of income made by US citizens will mean a 5 year denial of U-Care, including Medicare. You will have to rely on Private Insurance or Charity Clinics for those 5 years.

It’s a start, eh?

If you have any questions,  better ideas or plans put your thoughts in the comments and I’ll add them to the list.

*FYI: Most medical innovations, R&D and the like are done on the tax payer dollar through universities, more and more innovations are coming from foreign schools and government funded programs.

Stolen laptop contains personal info of 2,500 patients

A government laptop computer stolen last month held unencrypted medical records of 2,500 participants in a government study, Susan Shirin, deputy director of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) told CNN Monday.

The incident prompted the NHLBI to issue a statement saying it would no longer store patient medical information on laptops.

The lack of encryption violated federal guidelines dating back to 2006. Shurin told CNN the stolen laptop “fell through the cracks” and should have been encrypted. A thorough review of other laptops containing sensitive information is under way, she said.

The computer was stolen on February 23 from the trunk of a senior employee’s car, Shurin said. It contained the names, birthdays, medical record numbers and diagnoses of patients who participated in a heart disease clinical trial study conducted by NHLBI from 2001 to 2007.

Patients were informed last week of the breach, after an investigation determined the laptop contained sensitive information. The theft appears to have been random, according to a statement from the institute’s director.

In the statement released Monday, NHLBI director Elizabeth G. Nabel said she deeply regretted the incident.

“When volunteers enroll in a clinical study, they place great trust in the researchers and study staff,” said Nabel. “The incident may cause those who participated in one of our studies to feel that we have violated that trust.”
